When a firearm is used or discharged during a crime, the penalties are often enhanced dramatically.


When choosing a criminal defense attorney in City of Chesapeake, Virginia for a weapon or firearm charge or to restore your gun rights, consider the attorney's training and experience fighting these specific types of criminal cases, in addition to the attorney fees and costs.
